We get asked lots of questions when we’re doing farm tours, selling soap at craft fairs, or simply running errands. Since most of those answers are heard only by the person who asked, we decided to share some of the common questions here on the blog. And of course you can ask a question of your own!
Emery, what is it like being the Barn Manager? ~Jeanette L
Being the barn manager is hard, but it’s great. I like doing it because I can do a lot of things that need to be done on one day, fall behind the next day, and then make up the day after that.
It gives me a lot of flexibility that way – I have to do certain things every day – like feeding them!
But the big things I can do on certain days. Things like major barn cleaning, giving the goats their shots, and trimming hooves I can do whenever I want to do them.
I can do the inside jobs when it’s raining, and I can clean out the stalls when it’s pretty out!
Mom and Dad just make sure that the goats are being taken care of and they trust me to make the decisions on how I go about taking care of them.
It’s also nice to escape to the barn and not have to do house chores sometimes!
